Wayne Dyer running 4 hour LGAT on PBS...again...
Oh Good Grief, I turn on PBS and here you have Wayne Dyer running an LGAT ALL AFTERNOON on Sunday!
Not only does he run the LGAT, but he also is there in between to sell and hawk his endless books, tapes, dvd's, CD's, and other tools of persuasion.
Dyer is running a personality cult, an LGAT, and even a religion at this point.
Obviously, he must produce memberships for PBS, as they keep using him.
But again, NOT ONE SINGLE CRITICAL QUESTION IS EVER ASKED OF THE GUY. NOT ONE.
No one iota of skeptical inquiry is allowed.
Wayne Dyer is running a very convoluted and bizarre series of beliefs. I once heard him "hint" that he "manifested" a pair of needle-nose pliers using the power of his Mind!
What is interesting, is that Wayne Dyer appears to have had a cocaine addiction while he had been preaching all of his yuppie faux-Enlightenment stuff.
Also, he is linked up with some Indian Guru, and is selling Meditation as well.
Perhaps PBS is blown away by the legions of credulous people that just phone in when a guy like Dyer starts making his sales pitch.
Of course, this is great for Dyer, and gives him lots of credibility.
Now, even Dyer's co-host from the PBS station is using Dyer's Newspeak, about "Intention" and all of his other code-words.
Credulity sells. That is why all these tv networks love it.

Dr. Wayne Dyer: The Power of Intention
As a follow-up to his blockbuster 2001 pledge lecture shows, public television's favorite teacher of transformational wisdom turns his focus to a new definition of the concept of intention. In Dr. Wayne Dyer's newest public television special, Dr. Wayne Dyer: The Power of Intention, he transforms conventional thinking about making things happen in our lives into a profound understanding of how each person possesses the infinite potential and power to co-create the life he or she desires. Based on his new book of the same title, Dr. Dyer takes us from an examination of our usual approach to intention - a self-achievement orientation that is based to a great extent on the ego - to an exploration of intention as seen through his fresh interpretation of scientific and metaphysical thinking. Many great thinkers from an array of disciplines - renowned anthropologist/ spiritualist pioneer Carlos Castaneda, Nobel physicist Max Planck, Albert Einstein and the writings of the Bhagavad Gita, as well as the Bible - speak of a force that intends things into the material world and animates all life. Planck, in his speech accepting the Nobel Prize, called it "the matrix of all matter." Dr. Dyer introduces the audience to these philosophies and, based on these writings, explains that intention is better understood as a field of energy to which every person is connected - and from which every one of us is able to harness its infinite potential. Understanding the qualities of this remarkable field and learning to be in rapport with this universal force is the key, explains Dr. Dyer. The question, we are told, is not whether you are connected to the field of intention, since that connection already exists; the question is how capable are you of keeping your "link" to the field open and ready for what awaits you? "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change," is one of the foundation blocks of Dr. Dyer's presentation. What better way to understand that powerful statement that to see what the field of intention looks like? To accomplish this, Dr. Dyer takes the audience on a journey through the seven faces of intention, each paired with an empowering statement: Creativity -- I intend to live my life on purpose; Kindness - I intend to be at peace with everyone in my life, including my relatives; Love - I intend to respect myself; Beauty - I intend to live a stress-free life; Expansiveness - I intend to express the genius that I am; Abundance - I intend to feel successful and attract abundance; Receptivity - I intend to attract ideal people and relationships. Throughout the program, Wayne Dyer illustrates his points with signature stories that move the audience to tears - as well as abundant laughter. The program ends with The Dyer Dozen For Connecting to Intention - a recap of 12 key steps to opening the link to the field of intention: want more for others; think from the end; be an appreciator; be in rapport; be aware of resistance; contemplate yourself surrounded by the conditions you wish to produce; practice the art of allowing; practice radical humility; understand that you can't resolve a problem by condemning it; play the match game; meditate. The program was taped in front of an audience of almost 1000 fans at The Emerson Cutler Majestic Theater, a 100 year-old jewel in Boston's historic theater district.
